A Euromillions ticket worth €269,544 has been sold in Wexford.

A Quick Pick ticket sold yesterday in the Gwalia Store on Main Street in Gorey has scooped one lucky Wexford player almost €270k.

Speaking about the sale, the store’s owner Maureen Breen said: “We are in complete shock this morning. We are a small local shop in a small hard-working community and this will bring a huge boost to all in the town.”

“We had a queue for EuroMillions tickets yesterday and knowing that one of those lucky players has won over a quarter of a million in my shop is so satisfying,” she added.

Last night’s draw also saw a Dublin shop sell a ticket worth €25,117.

The Quick Pick ticket was sold on the day of the draw at SuperValu on Aston Quay Dublin 2.

A national lottery spokesperson has described the amount of Irish winners from last night’s draw as “an exceptional result”. All players have been urged to check their tickets today.

There was no winner of the record €109 million jackpot prize, which is expected to rollover to an estimated €120 million this Tuesday.
